How responsible are we for our children’s happiness?

Over the last month the subject of “how responsible are we for our children’s happiness” has been the dominate theme of a number of our discussions in two of our groups at the Fathers’ Forum in Berkeley, California. In our busy fast-pacing lives it is often the best we can do to get through the day with all the activities and responsibilities of being mothers and fathers. Here is an excellent video from PBS News Hour on “How parenting evolved into cultivating kids’ happiness.”

The Fathers’ Forum is dedicated to helping dads develop their individual and unique styles of the great balancing act of “life and work balance.”  We are committed to supporting men having discussions about fatherhood and parenting.

Dads who want to join in a discussion about their journey as a father can visit our social networking site to post comments, insights and opinions.


I encourage you to watch this video with your wife, husband or partner…share your thoughts with each other. If you are interested in more information about Jennifer Senior’s book… All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood
